Fire affected land managers are reminded that support is still available to replace fences that share a border with public land.
The NSW Government has committed $209 million to help bushfire-affected landholders with the cost of rebuilding boundary fences adjoining public lands.
Private landholders who share a boundary with public land and were impacted by the Northern and Southern fires of late 2019 and early 2020 are eligible to receive up to $5,000 per kilometre to contribute to the replacement of damaged boundary fences.
Note that for the purposes of this grant, public lands includes:
- National parks
- Forestry Corporation land
- Traveling stock reserves
- Crown reserves, tenured roads and leases
- Roads managed by Roads and Maritime Services or Local Government.
Grants can be issued retrospectively to cover costs already incurred by landholders replacing fire damaged fencing where a boundary is shared with public lands.
